, think about paris. cnn's alina cho tells us why in this week's travel insider. >> reporter: i lived in paris during college, so going back always brings back memories. one of my favorite things to do, then and now, sit outside and sip espresso or a glass of wine at a cafe. the french invented the concept. cafe de flore is my pick. and for dinner, across the street is also great. if you've never been to paris, take an afternoon on a sunny day and ride this boat. they are open air and allow you to see the entire city by sea. for the arts, this museum houses spectacular murals by monet. for shopping head to avenue montaigne, the madison avenue of paris. then, grab your walking shoes, walking all the way up and back down is a great way to work off a meal. and speaking of food, don't forget to buy a real baguette sandwich, or a crepe on the street. soon you'll feel like a native. alina cho, cnn, paris. >>> how old is the big blue planet that we're all living on right now? 10,000 years old? or 4.5 billion years old? the one and only bill nye the science guy will tell us what he thinks. at
needs help and negotiation. >> with all the focus internationally -- you're joining us from paris today. what important policy issues is its crowding out? where should our focus be at the moment? >> well, of course it's crowding out the issue of how we deal with our friends in europe who are suffering terrible economic pressure. europe is in a drought of no growth, of high unemployment and of real concern about what they do about the eurozone, whether the eurozone itself will continue to hold together and be the right solution. this is an issue -- >> i was just going to say what is america's role here? why is this issue, what's happening in europe, something that should be more significant overseas? >> we're major trading partners with each other. europe is a source of american culture. source of america's most faithful allies. we cannot turn our back on europe and i don't think president obama has any attention of doing so. >> ron freeman, thank you very much for your time this morning. >> thank you, kelly. >>> plenty to get through. if you have any thoughts, you can e-mail us. as far
their own. my grandmother then raised her family in the city and watched as the paris of the orient transformed into an american town with the add vent of the american troops. eager to explore new lands again, my grandmother did not need convincing to leave in 1975, and beautiful daughter, my mother, and her sister here today, had no choice but to follow among. once the parents decided that the whole family had to escape, the next step was to gather all the children and belongings and locate a safe passage out. it was no easy task because as you recall, i said i had eight elder brothers and sisters. moreover, the first attempt failed. after waiting two hours at the agreed upon rendezvous sight, the helicopter never showed. my dad found out later when we were safe in the united states that his cousin actually ran out of fuel and had to return to the air base. at this point, my paternal uncle set out to find another means of escape while the rest us of returned home to await word. our second and successful attempt of fleeing came by sea. when my uncle phoned us with the good news he s

would never forget. i shipped off to paris island and this is where i would spend my eighteenth birthday. happy birthday. it is not as bad as the next we birthdays because my nineteenth birthday i was in sniper school, my 22 birthday i was in mountain training in bridgecourt, i have a lot of good birthdays. in paris island, shipped to north carolina infantry training and after that went to hawaii where i was stationed the next three years and this is where i attended sniper school. after attending sniper school i shipped to iraq and in iraq i didn't get to complete my floor because i was bitten on my right hand by vicious enemy spider and suffered severe nerve damage but i will let everyone in the room know that the enemy will stop at nothing. they even train spiders. i turned back home for two years of dismal training and working up to get my hands back and this is why i became a sniper team leader under 500 marines and we were training to go back to iraq. we need five volunteers to go to afghanistan. i said what is the mission? we don't know yet. we just need five volunteers right now.
, and mitt was driving. >> it was a warm summer day in june when they began a six-hour drive between paris and the south of france. romney was driving anderson and his wife leola. >> they, i believe, were in the town of beaulac. as they come north near the top of the hill and in their way was a mercedes. they had no time to react. the car was on the wrong side of the road. >> the mercedes driver, apparently drunk, slammed into them at full speed. both cars crushed and mangled. mitt romney and leola anderson unconscious. >> george called me on the phone and said, "we have some bad news about mitt," but he didn't tell me what and he came and picked me up and took me to his home. i had word that he was killed. >> the policeman on the scene apparently thought i was in worse condition than i was and wrote in french "he is dead" on my passport. >> we waited for hours and hours, most of the night, to get word from france that he was actually alive. >> i was knocked unconscious and only recall waking up for a brief moment in the ambulance, going to the hospital. >> it turns out that romney had a s
of american politics and now we've turned into the paris. or that's how we feel. i would say on the whole, having talked to both sides repeatedly, they both insist that they're trackings show their candidate up a point or two. and i have no reason to disbelief them. that leads me to believe that it's very close. president obama would love to have virginia, because if he gets it, he really blocks most of the reasonable pathways to 270, assuming he keeps ohio and he's clearly ahead there. and governor romney really needs virginia. he's got to have it. >> speaking of gotting to have a state, let's go down to adam smith in florida. you guys had a poll out today, 51-45 that had romney ahead. this seems to be saturday same story that larry is hearing in virginia, i hear in florida, where the two sides insist they're ahead because they believe in two different world views of what the electorate is going to look like. >> i hear the same thing that both sides are convinced they're up by a point or two and this is a margin of error race. today was the last day of early voting in florida. democrats

. adams was the american minister to the court of st. james. jefferson the american minister to paris. jefferson made a tremendous contribution. he sent to his friend madison over 200 books on political thought, political history. my surmise is that some of those books must have been about the dutch federation. jefferson was not there. he did get his hands on a copy very quickly of the constitution. we e-mailed a copy for him over in paris. he said, where is the bill of rights? the answer was, there is no bill of rights. every people on earth is entitled by nature to a bill of rights which protect them against their government. this foreshadowed a problem. george mason was one of the members of the virginia delegation. he had written the declaration of the rights for the state of virginia in 1776. it was a few months before jefferson wrote the declaration of independence. when the convention was over, mason, who was a member of the virginia delegation, was a member of the virginia delegation, would not sign the constitution. washington was infuriated. so came about one of the great in

or paris or korea, and you start pointing out that no, we're not as good, it will create a sense of maybe shaking the complacency, which i think is the first step. there is a complacency here that people -- opinion leaders and people that have more disproportionate influence, don't view their own kids' plight as bad at all. and we need to create some awareness, i think, as john said, through information that this is a serious challenge for our country and it's, you sadly it's changing who we are as a nation and we're losing our competitive edge because of it as well. >> and this project under way, a really good one, and then also the common assessment to bring it right down to the kid level, how your child is doing in relation to these rigorous and we hope world class standards, will certainly give people information. at the same time, however, if you've got a smug suburban constituency and the teachers in those schools are also grumping that the politicians and the policymakers are making their life harder, threatening their jobs, giving them too much to do, narrowing the curriculum. >>
during the siege of paris, providing political and humanitarian support. >> coming up tonight an c-span an update an the fiscal cliff. first we hear from speaker boehner. later senate democrats explain what they are looking for in negotiations with republicans. house speaker john boehner told reporters there has been no progress in two weeks of discussions on the fiscal cliff. his comments came on the same day guide ner made rounds on capitol hill. this is ten minutes. >> good morning, everyone. the president has warned us about the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff. but his actions have not matched his public statements. members of his own party seem quite comfortable with sending the economy over the fiscal cliff. on tuesday, we had productive conversation at the white house. despite the claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have yet to get serious about real spending cuts. secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. this is not a game. jobs are on the line. the am

everyone has a shot. parents, you have got to paris. students, you have got to study. but do not tell me that hiring more teachers will not help the country grow. do not tell me that students should just borrow money -- more money from their parents. that was not an option for me, maybe not for a lot of you. that is why the change i want to bring is to cut tuition and have, make college more affordable. i want 100,000 new math and science teachers. i want to train 2 million americans at community colleges for the jobs people are hiring for right now. that is my plan. that is the america we are fighting for.

and paris h ilton to do a little bit more. it is common sense. many of them are literally saying, taxing more. they believe they have more to give. everybody in their situation needs to be asked to do a little bit more and the country would be better off. did lloyd blankfein say that the other day? the reality of the situation is shifting. i cannot think of a better situation than that. he is somebody you, in theory, understands economics. host: from the news conference, the president on the debt and entitlement reform. [video clip] >> we can shape a process where we look at tax reform, which i am eager to do. we can simplify our tax system. we can make it more efficient. a distorting effect on our economy. i believe we have to continue to take a serious look at how we inform -- reform our entitlements. health care costs continue to be the biggest driver of our deficits. host: there is a response from one of our viewers. democrats are more concerned with punishing successful people with tax code rather than growing revenue. how do you respond to that criticism? guest: i do not think that
in jerusalem. again, you just returned from paris and you say much of the talk was about what's going on in the middle east. >> absolutely. the group i was with was john bolton and it was quite a group of the we were talking about the iranian group that wants to see regime change in iran. they've just been delisted. and the reality is that's an option that we should be talking about. there are three option. option number one is negotiate and do some kind of detante like question with the soviets. two, is military attacks. both of those are bad. the third is, let's see if you can get a different regime. after all, we have a different regime in egypt. we have a new one in libya. we're going to have a new one in syria. a lot of questions about what's going to replace them. in iran, you probably could replace them with a pretty solid pro-western government if you did the right things. >> brian: kind of encouraged that president obama said he does have words of support for israel. >> they're getting bombed every day. and it turns out this has been going on for some time of the two, three a
